      I am refering to the recent discusion on this mailing list regarding 223/8 that APNIC received
      from IANA. APNIC is now handling back this /8 to IANA.  For your information please find the copy 
      of an email that we sent to IANA regarding this matter below.

      Dear Michelle,
       
      APNIC was allocated 223.255.255.0/8 by IANA on 12 February 2003.
      RFC3330.txt states that 223.255.255.0/24 is RESERVED.  At this point in 
      time, the reservation means that the network cannot be further assigned or 
      allocated. The reservation of this network impacts the sparse allocation 
      system used by APNIC for managing allocations, limiting the amount of 
      potential aggregation. Furthermore, the status of RESERVED is potentially 
      confusing for APNIC members, the majority of whom do not have English as 
      a first language. APNIC therefore is returning this block to IANA and 
      cordially requests that IANA delegate a block with no such reservation.
       
      APNIC regards the status of this address block as a matter for
      resolution by the IETF and IANA.  Once the status has been finally
      resolved however, APNIC would be willing to receive this block in a
      future IANA allocation.
      
      Regards
      
      Son
